After a year of no award shows, movie screenings, and red carpets, our people showed up and showed out in 2021. Take Zendaya for example, she always understands the assignment—always. Then, you have Regina King, who is a legend that we all grew up watching; she has her age like fine wine and her looks never miss. Russell Westbrook just gets it. He knows what works for him and rocks it with such confidence. (Guys, be sure he’s on your style vision board for 2022.)

Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite fashion moments from 2021.
